    I downloaded the iOS app after I ordered the car in Nov, and thus far, it hasn't changed. (e.g. I can watch the video guides)
    I was under the impression my car was supposed to show up in the app at some point,
    and I kinda' thought that would happen after I was assigned a VIN, but nope.
    Sounds like it definitely needs to happen sometime today in order to be able to unlock the car with my phone.
    Anybody else in the same boat - waiting for their car to appear in the app?

    Thanks,
    Nate

    My car did not show up in the app until right around my appointment at the factory this morning.

    Pretty sure nothing happens or chages until you go into the cars menu and allow it, its part of the delivery process

    It won't show until you've basically signed the paperwork. The delivery center will enable it as you are on site.

    Yup, the app is pretty worthless before delivery. Only thing you can see is referrals in the loot box, if you have any.

    The app gives you a lot of control over the car. They are not going to give you that much access to a car until you pay for it.

    interestingly, the app functionality did change tonight after I returned home from the Factory not picking up my car.
    But yeah, can't do much still, e.g. "Mobile Access Disabled" on the main screen.
